Man arrested in shooting near Colorado fairgrounds

A man faces an attempted first-degree murder charge for allegedly training a laser gun sight on a man then firing two shots as people were leaving the Colorado State Fair.

Nineteen-year-old Estephan Amarante Trujillo is also charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a firearm by a previous offender. Pueblo police say officers arrested Trujillo shortly after the shooting on a street near the fairgrounds Aug. 28.

A woman leaving the fair told police she noticed the red laser pointed at the head of one of two men walking down the street just before someone opened fire.

An arrest affidavit says Trujillo had a .45-caliber pistol and bullets that matched shell casings near the shooting. No phone was listed for Trujillo and it wasn't clear whether he had an attorney. He was being held Saturday in the Pueblo County jail on $250,000 bond.
